On draught at the brewery/brewpub in Delafield, Wisconsin. Pours an unfiltered semi-clear rusty amber brew with a thin light pink head that quickly dissipates clean. Aroma of mostly raspberry Koolaid with a touch of white bread malt and yeast. Taste is light bodied, some tart berry, a touch of cloves and yeast. Finish is watery, light, a hint of tart berry that quickly disappears.

Stopped by for lunch on a lazy Saturday afternoon. I ordered the sampler b/c this is what I do when confronted with having to decide among several brews. In the end, this is the one which stood out among all the others. And not in a good way. My lovely companion commented: "Raspberry and beer? Not so much." Indeed. If Dimetapp and rubbing alcohol had an illegitimate child, this would be that offspring.

On Tap. Pours a dark pink. Sweet raspberry aroma. Flavor was raspberry iwth a decent tart backing. Light on the palate. Good sell to the blended fruity drink crowd. Not my cup of tea either but better than the pale ale or the amber.

While adding fruit to a wheat beer always sounds like a great idea it never seems to work out well. This one didn’t either. There was plenty of raspberry aromas and flavors to it. They seemed authentic rather than canned, too. Many brewers are making this mixture. Hopefully the trend does not continue.

Had to try it - Delafield location. Atrractive honey color. Not heady, little aroma. Unusually strong fresh raspberry flavor (batch peculiarity most likely), too short of a finish even for a weiss. Difficult to pair with food.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Draught at the brewpub (Downtown Milwaukee location). Slightly hazy reddish-purple color with thin white head that didn’t leave any lace. Aroma and flavor were similar...cloying raspberry. Very sweet on the tongue. Reminded me of soda more than beer.

Sample at Delafild. Amber/orange body. Mild berry beer. Had a mild raspberry aroma and flavor. Not as tart as most berry beers are.

Ughsmash (7175) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2005
Cloudy red pour with a little white head. Very sweet aroma.. primarily of raspberries and a little wheat. Light and watery on the palate. Flavor was of raspberries, but not fresh ones... more of sugary raspberry concentrate. A bit tart on the finish. Better than expected, but definitely nothing special going on here.

MIBRomeo (2564) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2005
reddish in color w/ no head. Smells of mild raspberries. Palate is light. Flavor is a tart lightly sweetened raspberry and not much else. I didn’t like this one much at all.
